Non synthetic. Well run whatever you want but I wouldn't waste the money on the expensive stuff.

I went to Walmart tonight to pick up fluid and they had synthetic 75w-90 GL-5, but only 2 quarts. I picked up those and a qaurt of non-synthetic 85w-140 GL-5. Will the 85-140 be alright to use?

From the TJ side of the house. It appears that opinions vary. You may have to leave it as you have it and see what happens--make sure it's not blowing lube out your vent line or out the ends of your axle past the seals.
